Together in partnership, we believe we cultivate greater impact right from where we’re planted in the Triangle. Twice a year, we host two 5K races that raise thousands of dollars that aid us in constructing clean water projects in villages throughout India. We dream of the day when no village would ever know a day without clean drinking water. Join us every March for the World Water Day 5k and each September for our Carry the Water 5K. There are opportunities for everyone– including runners/walkers, volunteers, and sponsors alike– to come together to make a great impact. 

We work so we would see a day where water-borne illnesses would not cause death; so women and children do not have to walk miles to collect contaminated water; so every major city has a continuous supply of clean water; so the 97 million people without access would have clean drinking water. Join us in the dream today of transforming the lives of our beautiful friends in India who need your help today.
